A song for a woman I once loved more than love itself. I had been toying around with this little ditty for a long time, pretty shapeless and meandering.
At first, I tried it in two different beats - 2/2 time, then 3/4 time for the minor shift near the end. At first I thought it was cool, but eventually, I began to realize how it destroyed the wistful mood I was trying to convey. It made it sound too much like carousel music. So I kept it as a waltz.
It's really a simple song, on which I learned how to make gentle piano rolls and arpeggios and incorporate them as a melody.
She loves the song. Someday, I'll record this on a proper Grand Piano.

I really enjoyed this piece of music. I am making a film for university and I would love to use this piece in the film as it would fit so well. I'm not sure how this site works so here is my email address; email@example.com, I would love for you to get in touch with me.
Thanks, Emma Jakeways.
